{when the travel bug bites}

I have been to many many places in my almost 30 years, and I am so excited to add another big one to my list.

So far I've been to New Zealand, Paris, Spain & Morocco, St. Thomas, Jamaica, Ireland & Scotland not in the US & have been to pretty much {or at least through} every state in to US, with the exception of Alaska. 

Some pictures from my travels really bring back some awesome memories! These are pictures from Hawaii and the rest are outside of the US. Missing pictures from Paris. That's was 2005 before Facebook!

Marbella, Spain


I have my mom and her love of travel and her majorly long bucket list to thank for my love of travel! I can't wait to take this trip to London with her!

You don't have to travel far to experience this same thrill though.  It can come from exploring something or some place new that you haven't been. 

The kids and I took a trip to visit my late grandma & grandpa Dennis who are both buried at a military cemetary in Leavenworth, KS. It was a blast! We stopped sonewhere we had never been for lunch & discovered a few towns that we never go to!

Travel is also thrilling when it's spontaneous! Mike was chatting with our neighbors the other day as they were packing up their car. He asked them where they were headed & the husband replied "We are just getting into the car and driving, man!". Mike came home and told me and the travel bug struck. I said "I want to do that!!" with just a tinge of jealousy! How fun!

I can not wait to take another huge trip.  I will miss my hubs and kids, and am so excited to go somewhere I have always wanted to go! London!! Notting Hill, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey.  I can't wait to soak up all the tea and crumpets!


  1. I'm so jealous! My parents took us on U.S. vacations every year when we were growing up but I've always wanted to go to Europe. I'm finally planning a trip for 2016. When do you leave?
